National Conference on Futuristic Trends in Nanotechnology- 2013


A two days conference ‘NCFTME-2013‘ (National Conference on Futuristic trends in Mechanical Engineering and Nano Technology- 2013) was held on 15-16 November, 2013 in ‘Rawal Institute of Engineering and Technology‘.

The conference inaugural programme started with lighting of lamp of wisdom by the management and dignitaries present. Prof. B. K. Singh Convener of the conference welcomed the gathering and thrown light on the importance of new technologies and Nanotechnology.

The conference was graced by many renowned dignitaries from premier universities and colleges of India. Prof. A. S. Chaggar Prof In-Charge, Academic Affairs introduced the gathering to the academic, professional and research achievements of the dignitaries. Dr. Neeraj Khare,  Prof. at IIT, Delhi was present as key note speaker. In his address Prof. khare revealed the immense potential in the field of nanotechnology. Prof. Khare’s address was appreciated a lot by the audience as it started form basics of nanotechnology to the possibilities which exist in this area. He also emphasized how nanotechnology can help in developing high temperature superconductors.

Dr. S. P. Khatkar, director UIET, M. D. University, Rohtak, graced the occasion as Guest of Honour. Dr. Khatkar congratulated the management and the organizing team for organizing conference at grand level. In his address he assured the faculty and management that we will provide all the support to the organization for organizing seminars, conferences and workshops.

Dr. Raj Singh, vice chancellor, G. D. Goenka University, Gurgaon graced the occasion as chief guest and addressed the gathering. In His address Dr. Raj Singh advised both students and faculty to give importance on practical learning instead of classroom teaching. He also emphasized on interdisciplinary approach for research. In the end he announced opening of the conference.

Sh. C. B. Rawal (Chairman), Sh. Mahender Goel (President), Sh. Surender Goyal (Vice Chairman), Sh. Anil Rawal (Vice President) jointly felicitated all the guests present. The conference proceedings booklet was also revealed by the management and guests present.

Conference inaugural programme ended with blessings of the chairman, Rawal Institutions. In his address chairman appreciated the efforts of Mr. M. K. Madan, Advisor, Rawal Institutions and the organizing team. On the first day after inauguration two technical sessions were also organized. First session was chaired by Dr. M. N. Deshmukh and second by Dr. Badri Narayan. As many as ten research papers were presented on the first day by delegates.

On the second day (16 November, 2013) of the conference nine research papers were presented in the technical sessions. First technical session on the second day was chaired by Dr. Bhim Singh in which Mohit Taneja, Radharaman Mishra, Sandeep Nandlal, Pankaj Kumar etc. presented their research papers.  Last technical session of the conference was chaired by Prof. A. V. Waghmare. In the concluding technical session A. K. Sethi, Rajiv Kumar, Sanjeev Sharma and Arpan Manchanda presented their research papers.

The conference concluded with the valedictory programme. Prof. Bhim Singh guided the research scholars how to present their research work in his concluding remarks. The Chief Guest of the evening Dr. Rajender Kumar Anayat addressed the gathering and advised to give more emphasis to laboratory training. He appreciated the conferences and said such activities give a platform to the research scholars to present their research work. The chief guest then distributed conference certificate to the delegates.

All the dignitaries present were felicitated by shawl and memento as token of love and affection by Chairman Sh. C. B. Rawal along with Sh. Mahender Goel, Vice Chairman, Sh. Surender Goyal, President, Sh. Anil Rawal, Vice President and Sh. Sunil Goyal, General Secretary, Rawal Institutions.

In his farewell speech Mr. M. K. Madan, Advisor, Rawal Institutions thrown light on the conference and said such conferences give us motivation to organize such conferences and workshops in future.

The Chairman, Rawal Institutions Sh. C. B. Rawal in his address said we should continue to organize such conferences in future also and management is always available to provide support.

The function also included a musical “jugalbandhi” by Tabla and Tanpura artists which was appreciated by one and all.

Relation Of Mathematics with Engineering

For about a million reasons, Math is important to Science. Mathematics is used to describe things; it is the only way to examine things & to compare them with other things.

Mathematics was developed to create a method of comparison that people can understand more quickly and easily by understanding its fundamentals. In Chemistry, if you can’t do with the math an equation can’t be balanced. How much of something will react with something else can’t be determined, in fact, you can’t even properly describe the physical properties of something without math. Even calculations about expression of color needs knowledge of mathematics because color is based on wavelengths of light.

Mathematics is not the actual thing. It is a randomly accepted group of information used for descriptions. It only symbolizes reality it is not reality. So in expressing things especially where accuracy is required in reproducing exacting chemical reactions it is important to understand the math and communicate the information well.

Engineers are often math enthusiasts who got bored with the abstract. The type of math an engineer uses will depend on the type of engineer he is and the type of project in which he is involved.

Math is based on the idea of addition and subtraction. Multiplication and division are variations used to avoid multiple iterations of either subtraction or addition. Calculus, differential equations, arithmetic, algebra, geometry, complex analysis, probability and statistics are different areas of mathematics which have varied applications in Engineering. Engineers use all of these forms of math and many other forms as well.

When several factors of a problem are known and one or more are unknown, engineers use algebra.

Engineers may use plane trigonometry to determine the size of an irregularly shaped parcel of land and may also be used or to determine the height of an object. Spherical trigonometry is used by naval engineers in ship design and by mechanical engineers working on projects such as the design of mechanical hand for an underwater robot.

The engineers use statistics for statistical analysis of the design, the engineer can reveal what percentage of a design will need armor or reinforcement or where any likely failures will occur.
The Engineer uses calculus to determine rates of change or rates by which factors, such as acceleration or weight, change.

A very small portion of time is being spent by engineers in carrying out mathematical calculations. But it does not mean that for engineering mathematics is not important.

Virtually all the fundamental scientific principles are described, then analyzed, finally proven, and predicted through the use of one or more form of mathematics.

To help the Engineers in modeling and simulations these days, before anyone builds anything that costs a lot of money, they usually would like to develop many kinds of mathematical models, and analyze them using a computer. The mathematical model is a set of equations which describe what we think would happen to something if we really built it the way that it is described in the model.
